| In 1900, three men – Thaddeus Beal, his father William R. Beal and John Wilkie – purchased two companies which provided 5,000 Newburgh, New York customers with electricity and gas.
It was a bold move to reach beyond the economic activity of the city into a sparsely populated region, but Beal, Wilkie, and their associates recognized the need for consolidation of the many separate electric and gas companies serving our region. Over the next 25 years these men realized their vision. With the emergence of new energy technology and through the merger of 80-plus independent electric and gas companies, the Central Hudson Gas & Electric Corporation was formed.
The year 2000 saw the formation of CH Energy Group, Inc., a holding company/parent organization of Central Hudson Gas & Electric Corporation and a family of subsidiaries known as Central Hudson Enterprises Corporation.
Through our subsidiaries and affiliates, CH Energy Group offers electricity, natural gas, propane, fuel oil and other petroleum products, along with superior energy services for our residential and business customers. We are a well-established energy company with a tradition of business excellence, committed to dynamic growth that reaches beyond traditional geographical, product and service boundaries.
